Okay, I removed the 13mm nuts that are on the bottom of the door hinges. I'd like to pop off the (full) hard doors to cruise around. Smile

I kind of expected the doors to lift off, but they wouldn't budge.

Before I start to use percussive maintenance on the studs, is there a trick to lifting them off the hinges?

-Lawrence

P.S. Is there a fuse to disable the circuit that contains the door jam switches? Any risk/cost in pulling that one?

No trick. My doors came right off. You might want to spray some PB blaster or WD40 on the hinges, working the door(s) back and forth while lifting. I've heard others have problems getting their off the first time, too. Once they are off, clean the hinge pins and hinges and relube a little.

As far as the fuse goes, check out this thread;
